hunky dore there. don't forget lenders use credit scores to predict how well equipped consumers are to manage credit and repay a loan. higher the score, lower risk, lower interest rate. the score is based on your credit report from three different agencies. the phiko score is the one you probably heard of most weekly used. the highest possible score with fico is 850. that may be just for frank. the rest of us mere mortals 750. that's the magic level where you get the best rates. >> i actually refinanced and my score went down. >> oh. >> yeah. >> reporter: i'm going to explain why that is as a matter of fact. >> tell us why. what determines the score? >> reporter: well, let's tell you, the first and most important part a third of your score is based on your payment history. so that's why it's important to pay your bills on time. another 30% is based on what you owe relative to it your available credit limit. this is known as credit utilization. the number one reason why you should keep credit cards open
5:45am
even if you don't use them. now, here's the part that you're talking about, frank. 15% of your score is based on how long a credit history you have had. but the next 10% is tied to opening new credit accounts and having your credit checked. so if you and i just look and say, hey, what's my credit, that's not going to change your score. but a hard inquiry from a loan company, bank, credit card, has a measurable impact on your score. last 10% comes from the mix of credit like auto loans and mortgages and credit cards. so this is really important. americans are starting to borrow more freely in the last report we found that out. just keep an eye on this. you can request a free copy of your credit report at annualcreditreport.com every year. you have to manage this credit history and score. it will follow you throughout your financial life. >> i'm down to 833 now.

5:47am
you're done. >> game over! hey, guys, around the bay area today we don't have to worry about that but we have lots of low clouds and fog around the bay area. and it has swept well onshore this morning into some of the valleys. so it's looking like a cooler day ahead as high pressure now is sliding to the east and we have low pressure making its way out of the gulf of alaska so that's going to bring some cool sea breezes to the bay area at least for the next couple of days. then it looks like that ridge will start to build in ever so slightly over the weekend to warm us up just a little bit. in the meantime, though we are expecting some hot temperatures in the central valley but not as hot as it's been. still 99 degrees in fresno. 92 and the possibility of some thunderstorms in yosemite so watch out for that. about 65 degrees becoming partly cloudy into monterey bay this afternoon. low clouds and fog early on this morning. then breaking up a little bit. that patchy fog returning to the coastline and sliding back onshore. we'll probably see more drizzle as we head in toward tomorrow morning. temperatures going to be down but still comfortable today. a warm 81 degrees in san jose. 86 in morgan hill. about 63 degrees and cloudy skies into pacifica. numbers in the east bay out of

the 90s now but as high as 87 in livermore. about 84 in -- about 84 in danville. cooler temperatures inside the bay and stronger sea breeze. 64 in san francisco and about 70 degrees in alameda. next couple of days, we'll see some cooler temperatures then slowly warming up over the weekend. then look likes we'll hold steady pretty typical summer pattern through the middle of the week. let's check the roads with elizabeth. thanks, lawrence. a pretty typical light summertime traffic pattern, as well. in fact, we really haven't seen too many incidents since we have been on the air for the last hour and a half. let's go out live towards the dublin interchange. westbound 580 approaching 680 we had a smaller fender-bender. i just mention it because it's cleared to the right-hand shoulder. a few brake lights just a couple of slow sensors right there in the dublin-pleasanton area. but the bigger backups are farther east coming out of tracy 205, 27 minutes is that drive time there out towards 680 and the dublin interchange. so we are seeing those brake lights now all the way to about vasco but the nimitz and the
